Diaspora Tech Room Description

Though engagements with this model of Cylon Raider have thus far been limited, the Advanced Raider is roughly equivalent to the Viper MKVII. This fighter has a capacity for higher G-forces than the standard Raider, though its armor and ordnance are comparable. The Advanced Raider is not to be trifled with, as each carries enough ordnance to easily destroy a wing of Vipers or threaten a light capital ship. The Advanced Raider is considered a Class B threat.

Watch out! If any Raiders in a mission carry nukes, it will likely be these. Their maneuverability is such that it can be a devil trying to stay on their tail, and their AI class tends to be higher. An interesting thing to note is that the Raider is not so much a ship as a creature, and this is noted if you make a mission where you play as one--instead of flying a Viper from a cockpit, you ARE a Raider.
